2024 USET/USET SPF Impact Week

March 27 - March 29

2024 USET/USET SPF Impact Week
March 27-29, 2024
Crystal Gateway Marriott
Arlington, VA

Dissimilar to many other Tribal/Native organizational meetings and conferences held across Indian Country, the USET/USET SPF Impact Week, Semi-Annual, and Annual Meetings are not open for general public registration due to the nature of these being formal meetings of our Board of Directors. As such, anyone who is not representing a member Tribal Nation would need an invitation from the organization and/or a member Tribal Nation in order to attend and participate.

COVID Protocols (as of 04/17/2023, subject to change)

The USET Tribal Epidemiology Center (USET TEC) is a recognized public health authority supported by the Tribal Nations within the USET region. Throughout the course of the COVID pandemic, we have relied on their expertise to guide us to ensure for the overall safety, health, and wellness for our members, staff, and event attendees. As the impacts of COVID have evolved, we have continued to assess our protocols to ensure that they remain reflective of the current status of the pandemic.

Currently (as of 04/17/2023, subject to change), USET is no longer requiring proof of vaccination to attend USET-sponsored meetings. A supply of masks and tests will be made available for attendees to use at their discretion.
